batman-adv doesn't change your wifi signal. So I am assuming that your main
access point wasn't able to cover the whole area and so you use multiple
accesspoint and use mesh as a backbone between them.
Not quite. It's just that the most distant raspberry pi can't reach the
main access point, so I want it to automatically find a closer raspberry
pi to act as a relay. But yeah you're right I'm not trying to improve
the signal itself, just work around what I've got.

ip link set dev bat0 address XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
There might be a configuration option in whatever configuration interface you
use to bring up the interfaces.
Hey yeah, that's exactly what I'm after, thanks! I'm not sure
quite got it working exactly right, I'll have to see if leases still get
renewed correctly. But that command is definitely what I needed.
